of state hillary clinton recently issued a stern warning in her testimony before the house and senate committees responsible for oversight of u.s. foreign policy. she referred repeatedly to the need for our country to recognize and respond to what she called a, quote, global jihadist threat. mr. speaker, rarely have i agreed more with secretary clinton. yet mrs. clinton has been worried about this threat before now. she has done an impressive job of concealing it. the same is true of the obama stad ad administration more generally -- obama administration more generally. for the past four years the executive branch has gone to extraordinary lengths to obscure the danger posed by those who practice holy war or jihad against our country. the administration has also sought to silence and in some cases punish those who have spoken the trute about this menace. -- the truth about this menace. mr. speaker, i welcome the secretary's warning, belater though it may be. however, it would have served this country and the cause of freedom far more if she would have so openly and to have led encount

that during the clinton administration and alter the bush administration, they did nothing to rein in fannie mae and freddie mac which mr. bush could have done with his hud critz terry and reduced the mandates from over 60% that they wanted subprime mortgages. this is what caused the collapse. right now, fannie mae and freddie mac are making it more difficult to get a mortgage but they are going through the fha. this is part of the problem -- not that we don't have enough regulation, is that we don't have good regulation or people enforcing those regulations. guest: he raises a lot of really excellent points. you have to come back to the causes of the financial crisis. you are right, the rating agencies played a part in the financial crisis and subprime mortgages played a part and one of the parts that was played it was pay that was encouraging these companies to take risks, and that is why it is so important for us to review the reports that we did. i will give you a perfect example. you had loan officers at banks who were being paid bonuses and pay based on how many loans they created, not

hillary clinton that said it was unfit for her to the commander in chief. it was only banning a movie that would be available on pay- per-view cable. an adult cannot watch something in the privacy of their own home on pay-per-view because mccain- feingold banned it. do you really want to ban movies? the answer is perhaps yes, which is why i did not want to reverse citizens united. the second issue that came out of the decision is that all new avenues of disclosure -- i am not sure where this comes from, the reality is the court has upheld some disclosure, has struck other disclosure. the kaine- -- mccain-feingold were upheld in the mcconnell case, and what they out was a one-page disclosure regime for television and radio ads and movies that air on television, run within a well-defined parks ability to federal election that referenced a candidate. this does not give license to all sorts of other expensive disclosure machines or call from barclay, which limited the reach of disclosure. scored struck disclosure in the davis case in which most had written off on a millionaires' kids, but
